Tuesday, October 7, 2014 Workshops:
- In-situ/Operando Characterization of Soft Materials: Chris Tassone (SLAC SSRL) (Bldg. 48 ROB Redwood Conference Room C/D)
As devices based upon soft materials become increasingly complex, there is an increased need for characterization of these materials as they are being formed, as well as while they are in operation. Synchrotron radiation is uniquely positioned to fill this niche as the high energy x-ray sources facilitate the ability to characterize structural and electronic details of these systems in device relevant architectures, as well as during the deposition of these active layers. This workshop will focus on advances within the synchrotron x-ray community which have enabled the in-situ characterization of material formation as well as in-operando characterization of devices based upon soft material active layers.

In the first few years of x-ray free electron laser experiments, the technique of coherent diffractive imaging has shown great promise toward the goal of imaging singles at near-atomic resolution in three dimensions. In March 2014, SLAC hosted a workshop with members of the imaging community to discuss its role and to develop a roadmap for future enhancements of this method, thereby enabling new scientific discoveries. We will discuss the status of the technique and summarize the outcomes of the earlier workshop.

The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is the world’s first hard X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) and has enabled new insights into the structure and dynamics of materials at the atomic and molecular scale. New XFELs are planned at multiple facilities around the world, and there is a growing interest in the potential use of these x-ray sources for applied materials science and biology-relevant industrial applications. Specifically, the goals of this workshop are:
- Describe recent experiments at the LCLS implementing x-ray scattering and imaging techniques in conjunction with advanced optical laser technologies.
- Identify and address areas of industrial research in materials science and biology that will uniquely benefit from experiments at LCLS.
- Initiate the formation of an industry user group and identify collaboration pathways with LCLS.
- Present future research opportunities in the upgraded 100 kHz-repetition-rate LCLS II facility.

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 Workshops:
- Advances in Actinide Science from Synchrotron Spectroscopy (Joint SSRL/ALS Workshop): Stosh Kozimor (LANL), David Shuh (LBNL/ALS) (Bldg. 48 ROB Redwood Conference Room C/D)
- Over the past few decades, synchrotron spectroscopy has established itself as one of the most powerful tools used to study actinides and other radioactive elements. As testament, a variety of synchrotron techniques (i.e., EXAFS, XANES, RIXS, and ligand K-edge XAS) have played crucial roles in solving many challenging problems in actinide science, ranging from problems in environmental science and restoration, to nuclear energy, and nuclear forensics. SSRL has historically played a central role in establishing the use of synchrotron spectroscopy for studying actinides. This symposium will focus on how researchers at SSRL continue to use state-of-the-art synchrotron techniques to advance understanding of actinides for future innovation in actinide-based science and technologies. To achieve this goal, we have organized a workshop that includes talks on a wide variety of topics, ranging from the study of actinide fate and transport in the environment to advancing understanding of actinide electronic structure and bonding.
